Uni projects benefit from philanthropic donations
A UNIVERSITY scheme is set to give students the opportunity to have their projects funded. Students from Robert Gordon University (RGU) will have the chance to benefit from this year’s Annual Fund Awards announced by the RGU Foundation, the philanthropic fundraising arm at the university.
The awards were launched in 2015 and the aim of the fund is to inspire donations which will make an immediate impact by supporting innovative projects that would not receive funding through any other channel. Sarah Dingwall, RGU Foundation development manager, said: “We are extremely grateful to all those alumni and friends of RGU who through donating have made a commitment to the university and to it students. “Their generous foresight has allowed us to support ground-breaking projects and excellent services across the university.” Projects which have been awarded funding this year range from a student-led Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and a solar research project.
Since its launch, financial support has been given to 22 projects at RGU.
The funds are raised from alumni, staff and friends of the university.
